The focus of this colorful book is on using all the great fabrics available. The eleven projects are not difficult and are mostly wall quilt to baby quilt sizes, with a few larger ones included. Many of the patterns are based on charm squares, jelly rolls and layer cakes, with regular yardage included. My favorite quilt is "Dripping Diamonds." --Stick Your Nose in a Book: Quilting Book Reviews by Jennifer Zoeterman
See the feedsack-repro look of the fabrics on the cover quilt? Yet a fresh, modern sensibility? This whole book breathes fresh air into quiltmaking, combining striking fabrics, simple patchwork, and a touch of whimsical applique. These are projects that anyone would love to have around their house.
The quilt "Charming Garden" can be made using precut 5" charm squares for even speedier results. How simple, and how charming! I love the rickrack piping and the bias striped binding. Sarah provides coaching on how to use the values within the charm pack.
How about the cute "Birthday Bash"? You can hang it whenever there's a birthday at your house.
Fast, Flirty, and Fun starts out with sections on Color and Value and All About Fabric. As the author says, "Nothing will do more to make or break a quilt than these artistic qualities." Her quilts certainly demonstrate her savvy with both! Then we move on to cutting and piecing principles. My favorite one is, "Don t use your rotary cutter when you're tired."
The section on Applique Basics includes information on fusible-interfacing, raw-edge, and wool applique. All on the easier side and very good methods to have in your applique bag of tricks.
There's a section on quilting and finishing, and 11 darling projects ranging from wall quilts to table toppers to nap quilts. They all have that fresh, modern sensibility that is so in tune with today. --Kay Mackenzie, Allabouapplique.net
